A message of needed hope
César lives in Madrid and Zain in New Delhi, and they are real people each with his own family. Both have since then moved on and started their careers. Great for El Deseo to have taken up and released Larry Levene's documentary,contextualised against the 7/11 tragedy. The documentary reacts against easy polarisations and generalisations to take up the positive reading that personal knowledge can lead to tolerance and collaboration whereas ignorance breeds fear, and unfortunately for mankind, violence. Obviously edited, and there is no time to blink, the experience still comes over as convincing and fresh through the personal reactions of an exchange visit between New Delhi and Madrid of the two internet chess players and friends.
